Sample text

In those days (14th–17th centuries), the architect was brought up in the tradition of building and 2 | Chapter 1 Understanding BIM: From the Basics to Advanced Realities had integral knowledge of how buildings were constructed. Palladio, like many other architects of his day, grew up as a stonemason. Building techniques were deeply embedded in the construction trades, which in turn spawned the great architects of the time. Other master masons and sculptors who were also architects include the likes of Filippo Brunelleschi, Giovanni Bernini, and Francesco Borromini.

It’s now possible to detect spatial clashes between the multitudes of complex systems in the building. You can know with confidence whether ductwork will interfere with the structural steel long before construction starts. | Identifying the Advantages of BIM 3 The goal of reducing errors and smoothing out the construction process is driving firms to be more efficient, effective, and productive. With BIM, all the plans, sections, and elevations are derivative representations of the model: producing these drawings is no longer a set of isolated, repetitive, and discontinuous tasks.

And of course, with an integrated model, you don’t need to worry about referencing other drawings to keep the drawings up to date and in sync. BIM Is More than a Technology Approach: It’s a Change in Process One of the powers of Revit is the ability to work in a single-file environment where the design and documentation of the building happens on a holistic model. This can be a disadvantage if it isn’t taken seriously. Users who are quick to make changes without thinking about how such changes will ripple through the model can cause unintended problems.
